A mother announced one Christmas that she was no longer going to remind her children to write their thank-you notes. As a result their grandmother never received acknowledgement of the generous cheques she had given her grandchildren. The next year, however, things were different.

"Oh, that's easy," the grandmother replied. "this year I didn't sign the cheques."
